Use this option to search for different spellings of a name. For example, Bailey and Bayley. This technique uses the phonetical sound of the word to find similar sounding matches.
Use this option to search for nicknames which may have been used instead of the standard name - for example Betty, Betsy, Beth or Liz for Elizabeth.
Indexes which have these features will show a checkbox alongside the appropriate name entry fields so you can include them if you wish.
